It’s that time of year again…! If you’re already breaking out into a candy-coated sweat trying to conjure up ideas for this year’s Instagram-worthy kid Halloween costume (let alone one for everyone in the family) you’re in for a seasonal treat. I’ve been perusing the internet for my very favorite homemade family costumes and I’m so pleased to report I’ve found the crème de la Halloween crop.

What were we looking for? Something relatively simple to pull together, a group costume that wouldn’t break the bank, and fun, imaginative ideas the whole family could get behind. Guys, the creativity in this collection is off the charts. And as if that weren’t enough, listen: we here at b&b have a comfortably broad definition of “family,” so is there something for the pet in your life? Of course.

Looking for simple DIY kid costumes? We have a collection of the best (quick) homemade costumes for kids here.
